We liked this place a lot. Big dorms, but clean and with luggage storage under the bed, so good to keep valuable things there when you asleep. They also have safe locks. Shower is really good. The rooftop terrace is great, romantic and an outstanding place for meeting other travellers. Breakfast is really good. Go book there!

Best location! Right next to Sultanahmet Square. Ahmed and Ghaits were very understanding with our date changes!  Istanbul feels super safe. Would definitely recommend!  Can see the Blue Mosque from the hostels roof terrace!

Perfect location, really close to Topkapi Palace and other atractions in the city! Breakfast is good and very healthy. The staff is nice and one of the guys was very helpful and fun. The rooms are ok, very spacious and with cool views.

Not only is the place cheap and affordable but the people are great. Helped us arrange boat tours at great prices, and one of the volunteers even cooked for us breakfast and dinner on a daily basis. He even taught me how to re-create the dishes after I showed my interest in them. We all hung out , listened to... More

This hostel offers a great value for what it offers with a reasonable breakfast and really big dorms, most of them with no bunk beds which is awesome for a hostel. The amenities were being renewed at the time, so let's hope for improvements mainly in the bathrooms and common area. The staff is always willing to help and at... More

When I visited it was very low-season! The location was amazing. I could walk EVERYWHERE. Less than 1 minute to the nearest tram station (which brings you everywhere for only less than a 1 euro per trip). 3 mins walk to Tokapi palace. 10 minutes walk to Blue Mosque/Aya Sofia. Because it isn't in a very touristy location, it was... More

At first glance, we weren't sure about this hostel, but with time the staff and location won us over. The rooms aren't much to speak of, and the WiFi really only worked in the lobby - not a hangout friendly spot. But the location!! So close to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, and waterfront. Staff was also great - Aksu... More

Harmony hostel is located in the city center, in Sirkeci. Hostel is small but really nice. Staff is a helpful. Hostel is clean, and price is really good. I love taras, every night guests and staff stayed there and spend time together. I want back there in next year.

My partner and I arrived at check in to be told there was no sign of our booking and we had to wonder the streets until they 'figured it out' (we should have seen the red flag right there!!). After a couple hours we went back and the guy had found us a dorm and we checked in. When I... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
